UDT 2017: Optimising the constraints by maximising the variables


Undersea Defence Technology (UDT), taking place from 30 May - 1 June is the underwater defence and security community's most relevant exhibition and conference. It brings together professionals from the military, industry and academia to focus on the cutting edge technologies and developments within one of the harshest environments known to man.

Now in its 30th year, UDT 2017 will take place in Bremen, Germany. UDT is a multi-faceted event that reflects this community's desire for continuous learning in dealing with the world's increasing diversity of threats and challenges.

This year, we are honoured to welcome Vice Admiral Andreas Krause, Inspector of the Navy, German Navy to deliver the keynote address.  The plenary session features Captain Herman de Groot, Head of Submarine Service, Royal Netherlands Navy.

This year's conference agenda will explore the theme: “Optimising the constants by maximising the variables”. The main UDT three-day conference will be divided into the following streams: Sensors and Processing, Platform Design, Weapons and Payload Systems, Autonomous and Unmanned Systems, and Operational Drivers Weapons and Payload Systems. This year’s agenda is packed with military leaders and key industry players and is one of our largest and most in-depth in UDT history.

In the lead up to UDT 2017, we interviewed our speakers to get their views about the industry and their session. You can read all the speaker interviews at www.udt-global.com/speaker-interviews
